Dr. Juergen Richt, Ph.D., of Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine conducted independent clinical studies to verify the effectiveness of PenCheck, for Silver Lake Research Corporation in California.For the study, Richt's team used climate data from the Midwest to recreate artificial stations in biosecurity chambers.Richt and colleagues are focusing on compounds that can be administered orally or as a nasal spray.Dr. Richt applauded scientists at Silver Lake Research Corporation for quickly developing a test that can deliver results in such a short period of time.Dr Richt and his colleagues at Kansas State University are also focused on determining the appropriate combinations of ASFv proteins and how best to deliver them for a safe and effective vaccine.

A recently released, quick and easy-to-use test to detect African swine fever entered the marketplace. Silver Lake Research Corporation manufactures PenCheck, the only low-cost rapid African swine fever test with accuracy rates greater than 95%. In the sensitivity tests, the test correctly identified 21 out of 22 pigs with moderate to severe symptoms of African swine fever. In the specificity tests, the test determined that 143 of the 144 virus-free pigs did not have the disease.
During the fall and in lower temperatures and humidity, the virus could, for example, remain in a person's clothes that constantly take to the streets for a week The authors of the scientific paper, Taeyong Kwon, Natasha N Gaudreault and Juergen A Richt, believe that "the virus would also survive longer indoors in colder and less humid conditions. Autumn in the United States could lead to potential COVID outbreaks.
Research at the Biosecurity Research Institute typically focuses on pathogens that threaten the food supply by infecting crops or livestock animals. With its complex ventilation system, multiple power backups, and highly trained staff, the Biosecurity Research Institute has been described as a “fortress for research.” These engineering features enable its researchers to safely handle dangerous animal and plant pathogens. The safeguards also allow Biosecurity Research Institute researchers to work with the novel coronavirus itself, a rarity in COVID-19 research.
